I am a freelance sculptor based in Milton Keynes. My work and the kind of jobs I do are varied, they can be commissions, projects that I've won from open bid, commercial sculpture or my own work. Alongside any projects that I work on I usually run workshops or courses.
My own practice, developing a body of work that is my own personal journey is ongoing and at the heart of what happens in my studio. The other side, which I also love, is what I like to call sculpture design or commercial sculpture. This is where I work on projects for individual clients or larger companies. This work ranges in size and complexity. I have projects to design and create sculptural solutions for clients, from a small scale to large. it is very rewarding to work with a client to creat a sculptural solution or site specific piece. Sometimes it just involves making a required object, like a figure for Madame Tussauds. It's all fun.
My degree and masters were in fine art sculpture and I’ve been sculpting ever since for myself or for others. Most of my commercial work is not included on the site, however I have sculpted or modelled for various organisations including Madame Tussauds, Pangolin editions and also Form and Light a company that used to produce comic prototypes for Warner Brothers. I have also run a sculptor studio for another sculptor for several years and have taught art, design and sculpture based courses at University level and privately. I’m currently based in Milton Keynes and work regularly on sculpture contracts in London. My CV and exhibition history can be viewed here.

How I work depends on the job. Often i am asked to do sculpture work on site, but I have a workshop where I make my own work for exhibitions and private commissions. i have worked large and small and in a variety of materials. I have written a short article about commissioning a sculpture and the steps involved. I like to have a clear process for any commissioned work. The main thing is if you want to chat over a commission idea or just want some friendly advice, contact me and we can talk it through.
Great result, the Awards looked fantastic. They had the wow factor we wanted. Sara fulfilled all the criteria and was before deadline. Everything was straightforward and easy. It was a great success, we were thrilled with the Awards.

I work in my studio alone but have a wonderful network of talented artists, graphic designers, 3-D printers, makers, photographers, precision metal engineers, engineers, CAD technitions and suppliers that I collabourate with on projects, here are a few:
Vicki has photgraphed many of my sculptures and me on this website. Fantastically clever professional photograher for commercial jobs but also beautifully creative in her own work.
So glad I've met Allan and Fred at MK Precision. If they say they'll do it- they will. To a high standard and to deadline. Solid.
I am lucky to have worked alongside some of the best modellers I know, with a whole variety of sculpting experience in the sculpture department at Madame Tussauds,. They are part of a much bigger team that work together to create the waxworks. Check out the Madame Tussauds website for their latest gems.
